Wildlife Mitigation

Where wildlife is in danger of harm on any site, then we can carry out appropriate wildlife mitigation measures to ensure the wildlife in question is safely and securely protected from any such harm.

This may involve establishing a mini-habitat on a site so the wildlife can safely co-exist. Or it may involve some translocation – moving the wildlife to an appropriate adjacent site where it can safely exist. Moving wildlife is usually only a last resort, but sometimes it may be the only option.

Other forms of mitigation include the installation of bat and bird boxes to mitigate possible impact on such species, and the installation of wildlife fencing, for example to limit reptiles from entering an industrial site. Also, the creation of suitable wildlife habitat, such as amphibian refugia, hibernacula, otter holt creation, and wader scrapes.

We are fully experienced in mitigation works for local authorities, landowners, national companies, national wildlife charities and trusts, building contractors, architects, planners and developers.

If you have a forthcoming project that entails wildlife mitigation and would like to discuss this further, then we would love to hear from you. You can call us on 01228 711841 or email enquiries@openspacegb.com.
